AutoIt Open program on keypress

Recommended Posts



I've lately been messing around with AutoIt to try to create a program that will run an external player in XBMC.

See here for details


I thought I would ask the same question here. Is there a command that will open or maximize a program/window on a keypress eg. in my case "Backspace"? so the process would wait until that key is pressed until continuing. I am looking to this method as I am having a lot of trouble with the WinWaitClose and ProcessWaitClose commands which are not working at all for me and as the backspace key closes the "uMCEPlayer.exe" process which I am trying to work with, it should have the same effect.

Any suggestions?

Maybe just point me in the direction of a command or piece of code that will do this.
